The Found story

Like all great ideas, Found was born from a problem that we knew we could solve.

It started in Melbourne when our CEO and Founder, Lance, left his keys in a taxi. After numerous phone calls and police station visits, he accepted his keys were gone for good.


But all was not lost, because the idea for Found emerged. Now we're building the community that protects so that the 50 million items lost in the UK each year become 50 million found items!

Lance Plunkett

CEO & Founder

I'm always losing things but the most memorable was when I left my keys in the back of a taxi. All of them; house keys, car keys, the lot.


But that's how I came up with the idea for Found so it was a good job I did!

Once my daughter lost her toy phone while we were on a 5-mile walk.


The toy phone was so important to her I had to walk back along the 4 miles we’d already covered to find it, and luckily, I did.

When I was a kid, I lost my phone on the way home from school.


After a rainy weekend, I was walking back to school and found my phone sticking out of the mud. The volume switches didn't work, but I got it back.
